In der deutschen Anleitung steht: "Die Lm-Schnur um den Hals legen und zusammenziehen." - Die Luftmaschen-Schnur wird natürlich um die Ohren gelegt, festgezogen und zur Schleife gebunden - die süßen Häschen werden doch hoffentlich nicht stranguliert... ;-)

Lovely pattern

Eline Odden Berg 12.01.2014 - 09:53:

Hei :) Driver å strikker eggeposen, og har kommet meg godt i gang. Men jeg lurer på en ting! Hva betyr dette stjernetegnet her * ? Har prøvd å finne det ut, men det står ingen ting om hva det betyr. Setter stor pris på meget raskt svar

DROPS Design 13.01.2014 kl. 12:22:

Hei Eline. Du skal gentage beskrivelsen mellem stjernerne. Der staar i mönstret: Nå strikkes neste p slik: 4 r, * 2 r sammen, 1 kast, 5 r *, gjenta fra *-* og avslutt.... God fornöyelse

Im Rahmen eines Knitalongs (Drops-O-Kal2010) hab ich graue, violette braune und weiße Häschen gestrickt. Viele hab ich verschenkt und so schmückten sie viele Ostertische.
